Guarini Center for Environmental and Land Use Law Fellowship – Deadline Feb. 3

Guarini Center for Environmental and Land Use Law Fellowships

This program, available to up to ten first and second year students, is designed to encourage and support students interested in public interest environmental law through summer internships, mentoring by the School’s environmental and land use faculty, and exposure to leading practitioners in the field.  The Program provides grants in the amount of $7,000 for 2Ls and $5,000 for 1Ls (i.e., $500 more than regular PILC Grants), for summer internships to students working in environmental and land use law with environmental groups, government agencies, and other public interest law practice institutions in the United States or abroad.

Recipients will be required to attend three special events with the School’s environmental and land use law faculty and distinguished public interest environmental law practitioners during the fall semester following their internship.  These events will give students an opportunity to meet leading environmental law practitioners and to engage with the School’s environmental and land use law faculty and students with similar interests.

How to Apply

To apply, please submit a resume, unofficial transcript, and statement of interest in public interest environmental and land use practice including information about placements secured or contemplated to Professor Stewart’s assistantassistant, Basilio Valdehuesa, at Valdehuesa@exchange.law.nyu.edu, VH Room 411.  Application Deadline is February 3.  Selections will be made by a faculty committee consisting of Professors Vicki Been, Richard Stewart, and Katrina Wyman. Students are responsible for finding their own placements, but the faculty listed above will be happy to provide suggestions and other help. You do not need to have identified an internship yet to apply for the fellowship; students have until the April 9 PILC deadline to secure placements.
